If you smile at me, I will understand
'Cause that is something
Everybody everywhere does in the same language

I can see by your coat
You're from the other side
There's just one thing I got to know
Can you tell me please, who won the silly war?

Say, "Can I have some of your purple berries?
Yes, I've been eating them for six or seven weeks now
Haven't got sick once
Probably keep us both alive

Wooden ships on the water, very free and easy
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline, let us be
Talkin' 'bout very free and easy

Horror grips us as we watch you die
All we can do is echo your anguished cries
Stare as all human feelings die
We are leaving, you don't need us

Go, take your sister then by the hand
Lead her away from this foreign land
Far away, where we might laugh again
We are leaving, you don't need us

And it's a fair wind, blowin' warm
Out of the south over my shoulder
Guess, I'll set a course and go
